Hereof, what is the story of Solomon in the Bible?
The Judgment of Solomon is a story from the Hebrew Bible in which King Solomon of Israel ruled between two women both claiming to be the mother of a child. Solomon revealed their true feelings and relationship to the child by suggesting to cut the baby in two, with each woman to receive half.
Likewise, why did God give Solomon wealth? The reason was because, when God promised Solomon that He would grant any request, Solomon asked for wisdom to rule the people. God was so pleased that Solomon didn't ask for wealth (among other things) that along with wisdom He also gave him wealth.
Likewise, people ask, what did Solomon learn about wisdom?
Solomon was the biblical king most famous for his wisdom. Solomon asked for wisdom. Pleased, God personally answered Solomon's prayer, promising him great wisdom because he did not ask for self-serving rewards like long life or the death of his enemies.
Why is Solomon the wisest king?
He was wisest because he asked wisdom to God. God gave it to him. By inspiration of God he wrote Ecclesiastes and many of the proverbs of that book in the bible.
